Tomb Raider Reloaded revealed, out February 14th

Tomb Raider Reloaded

Tomb Raider Reloaded has been revealed by CDE Entertainment, and players can expect to get their hands on it from February 14th. Tomb Raider Reloaded is going to be available on Netflix, iOS and Android devices, and it will be the first roguelike title in the Tomb Raider franchise. The Netflix version will not have ads or in game purchases.

The description for the game reads, “Tomb Raider Reloaded takes players on an action-filled adventure as they jump into the boots of groundbreaking hero Lara Croft on her swan-diving, cliff-climbing, back-flipping quest to obtain the ancient Scion artifact, clearing ever-changing rooms filled with new and familiar enemies as well as hazardous traps and puzzles. Along the way, they’ll acquire run-specific boosts alongside permanent rewards, like XP modifiers, runes that improve Lara’s stats, and manuals used to unlock and upgrade her outfits, such as her fan-favorite bomber jacket. As players progress through each level, they can stack perks to enhance Lara’s abilities, and even craft weapons to upgrade her arsenal.”

Keeley Hawes will once again voice Lara Croft, having played the character in Tomb Raider: Legend, Tomb Raider: Anniversary, Tomb Raider: Underworld, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, and Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris. Crystal Dynamics have also had some input into the development of Tomb Raider Reloaded, advising on the addition of locations such as City of Vilcabamba, the Lost Valley, and St. Francis’ Folly, as well as returning characters Winston, Anaya Imanu, and Werner Von Croy. Tomb Raider Reloaded will also include daily and weekly challenges such as a wave based event called Temple of the Sun. Exploration in the Tomb Exploration mode will also net players with additional rewards.

Back in December, it was confirmed that Amazon would be publishing the next mainline Tomb Raider game. The next Tomb Raider will, as you’d hope, be a single-player, narrative-driven adventure, seemingly building on the template established with the trilogy since the 2013 reboot. One key change, however, is that Crystal Dynamics has packed it in with their homegrown game engines and will instead be using Unreal Engine 5 – in fact, the next Tomb Raider was announced during a UE5 showcase back in April.
